signing bonus. let's talk about the mcnabb trade. apparently everything is in place as long as he agrees to it. being traded for a sixth round pick and taking a by curkt kind of what we expected. then again, if you could get them to take a by cut and stay, you still have some veteran leadership in the back-up role. >> the relationship was too fractured. this was just a spectacular failure for the redskins organization. i will be one of few maybe but i'm going to root for donovan mcnabb when he goes to minnesota. he has 230 touch downdowns. even with the failures of last year, you can have one or two more pretty solid years, i think that solid identifies the hall of fame for this guy. is a good dude. he just dp work out here. >> he may be successful in minnesota. they will have the best running back he has ever had withed aery appear peterson. but the relationship was

fractured so you got to cut your losses. i actually think it is good they got sixing round picks. i thought identify while, they might cut him and do nothing. do not pull an albert haynesworth. let him work and start over. >> he will go there and start. they are not going to start joe webb so it is a good situation for him. he will take the deal. they'll work out on the money and he will be gone. >> it is funny, steve, that the one thing that sort of is slowing things down here is the redskins come pounding their problems last year after they benched and humiliated mcnabb, they decided to give him extra money to try to make it look good and that is the one thing that is slowing this deal down. >> financial management has not been their strong suit in the past. that is for sure. any draft pick the redskin can get is a good draft pick. when you look at the vikings situation, you mentioned their quarterback coming in. he can learn from mcnabb and probably put him in a good

place. matt hasselbeck off the table now apparently. what are the options left for the redskin. do they not need some quarterback with some veteran leadership to be on the staff. >> they might need one but they are not bringing one in. yesterday, john beck couldn't even get into the building. security didn't know him. >> they will have another guy. they are all going to be sort of on that same caliber. mike shanahan has decided this will be his crew in general. it will be a third tier quarterback and we'll have to sort of make up the deficiencies with the other positions. >> real quick before you all weigh in on that, let me get one more thing this there. you know how the rivalry goes between the cowboys and red skip. cowboys yesterday cut loose a bunch everett vans including roy williams and marion barber. any chance the redskin make a play just to say we got your guy. >> i don't know. they have a couple offensive line men whoer this letting go who i think the redskins should
